PETA billboard wants Marylanders to stop eating crabs

Posted at 5:37 PM, Aug 23, 2018

The animal rights group, PETA has sparked some major attention in Baltimore after blasting a crab billboard to encourage Marylanders to go vegan and not eat crabs. 

The billboard is posted right near the Inner Harbor outside the Shot Tower-Market Place subway station.

It shows a picture of a colorful crab on the board, that reads: "I'm ME. Not MEAT. See the individual. Go Vegan." 

This comes after PETA launched an initiative to persuade people to not consume seafood in an effort to end commercial fishing and promote veganism. 

Marylanders love crabs! It's the State's culture! And in just a few words plastered downtown, it has locals feeling some type of way.

"I really don't understand because Maryland, Crab go hand and hand with the harbor, big tourist thing. And I think it will be a big mistake if they do keep that and push it further because that's a money maker and everybody loves our crabs," said a Maryland resident.

Well if that isn't a slap in the face to the state of crab lovers, we don't know what is!
